Aged Shou Mei...?

White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

Aged Shou Mei...?

The Dragon Tea House recently put up this aged white tea, a Shou Mei.

I'm not too experienced with aged whites -- anybody tried anything like this one before?

I've had a shou mei that (was most likely aged)
I got it at a fair price.
It was good. but, I have no experience with this vendor.

I like shou mei of a few years old (haven't had any of very old age yet) and think it remotely resembles oriental beauty. I am not enthusiastic enough to age a lot of whites myself. But overall I like year-old white peony and silver needle better than new ones. Ever since I tasted some past years' whites, I no longer worry about overstocking whites. :D
